Is there a possibility of enabling symlinks in the docs uploaded to pythonhosted.org/<package>? This would be very helpful in creating 'stable' and 'latest' documentation links for packages with multiple versions, e.g:

https://pythonhosted.org/gwpy/v0.1a4

was uploaded in a zip along with a symlink directing stable -> v0.1a4 for

https://pythonhosted.org/gwpy/stable/

but this link is disabled.

    Sorry, this isn't something we can reasonably support at this time: there are security implications that we aren't confident we can spend the time to work through. Also we aren't sure we'll be sticking with an actual filesystem to store the files in the future.

    For now, just include a copy of the files under the other name.
